year $12 billion is what the i.r.s. got. this year the house g.o.p. only wants them to get $9 billion, which is $4 billion less than what president obama had in his budget for them. >>steve: so they would slash 3 billion in a spending bill. there are a whole bunch of bills on capitol hill the republicans are considering -- they're steamed given the fact the i.r.s. has clearly targeted conservatives. >>brian: and have not responded to the inquiries as to why it happened and the smugness with which they spoke about this is beyond the pale. they want to hold back 10% of the i.r.s. enforcement budget. wouldn't that be novel? think about this. the i.r.s. is not coming clean about why they were targeting tea party organizations. they are clearly giving out bonuses we weren't aware of. they are having conferences at a time we're tightening our belts, they can't get $3 billion less to do a little less line dancing? >>gretchen: there is breaking news in this. the i.r.s. chief danny werfel is working to kill those bonuses. he's pushing to maybe try to get rid of them. >>brian: what's he going t
-sixth of the american economy will not succeed and cannot succeed. that's a lesson the obama administration doesn't seem to get. doubling down on selling obamacare that is less popular today than when the president signed it into law. in fact, the white house is rolling out a massive multibillion-dollar p.r. campaign using taxpayer dollars to try to convince the american people that it's all the administration promised, shaking down the health care industry. professional sports team and movie stars in the process. when's it going to stphepbd what's the -- going to end? what's the matter with this administration? can't they just live with the facts and acknowledge that this is a dog? in fact, a cynic might argue that obamacare was designed to fail in order for the federal government to step in for a true european-style single-payer system that many on the extreme left wanted all along. in other words, socialized medicine with the federal government controlling every aspect of our lives from the medicine standpoint and health care standpoint. now it seems as though every day we learn about more and more p
. this is something that democratshe psident are fiercely opposed to. but the house republicans think that that's actually very fair because they trust their own people in their districts more than they trust the government. particularly under the obama folks. so it's a really difficult path for any republican with a national profile to try and tell them what toover to do because i feel like -- what to do because i feel like every time i talk to a house republican they're mostly listening to their constituents back home and to their fellow members. host: so we'll be covering, as we told our viewers, the george w. bush speech on immigration here on c-span go. to our website, for more details of when that will air and on which network. "the washington post" editorial page weighs in this morning and says, national necessity, mr. bush reminds us that immigration is a bipartisan issue. and then the editorial pages of the "wall street journal" as you probably know has been in favor of some sort of immigration reform effort and they this morning say house republicans in immigration, a g.o.p
